Not knowing the setlist for the gig at San Quentin State Prison(3/7) three days into life,it would be Cryptical on 3/11/68.
Isn't that one about birth and death? That's a funny coincidence.

Truckin' false start, naturally followed by Truckin'.

Grateful Dead
Fillmore East
New York, NY
9/17/70 - Thursday

From Deadlists...

The tape begins with Truckin', which has a piano loud in the PA mix; this is halted after 18 seconds by Garcia's shouts of "Hold it! Monitors! We won't play without the monitors." During the following banter Phil proposes "If you got a yellow dog bring him up here and we'll screw him." When they restart Truckin' Garcia calls out over its opening "Bring the piano down!" and it comes down in the PA mix over the next 20 seconds or so.

Later in the show: "This is one of the major Dark Stars of the year. There is a Tighten Up Jam starting around 18:00 minutes in to Dark Star."

First concert was KISS @ The Capital Centre in Landover, MD. I was in 2nd grade---'76 or '77. That was defintely the LOUDEST concert I've ever heard---sat through everything but Pete Criss' "BETH" with my fingers in my ears. 1st song---not sure at all.

First GD show---10/19/89 @ the Spectrum---Hell In A Bucket. I was TRIPPIN', so I thought it was the greatest thing I'd ever witnessed. In hindsight I realized how lucky I was to capture ANYTHING on that tour. Baby Blue was a minor disappointment for the encore though.

I was really excited about responding to this question, 12/4/69, the first song being "Casey Jones". My excitement became somewhat tempered, however, when I looked up the recording on the archive, and much to my chagrin, the show actually starts off with an invitation to Altamont. Yikes!!!

04/22/66 (Fri) Trips Festival @ Longshoreman's Hall - San Francisco, CA
Set 1: Good Morning Little Schoolgirl > You Don't Love Me > Good Morning Little Schoolgirl

And though it doesn't seem to get the notoriety of other dates 4/22 was a consistently grate day to see the Grateful Dead throughout their career.

Cold Rain & Snow (10/13/90) It would've been hard to get to Sweeden though.
